    Hello,
    My name is Wayne. I enjoy old bicycles, especially those with motors on them. I have a 1977 Murray Firecat (original owner!), 1924 Elk (Westfield/Columbia built), and a 1947 Honda Type A project. Excited about seeing what everyone has completed and working on.

    You've got a 1947 Honda Type A? I'm thinking of the right model, aren't I? That's the one that is basically a motorized bicycle, isn't it?

    That's one cool possession, dude.

    Anyway, welcome aboard and have fun.

    We want to know more about your bikes.

    thanks Bluegoatwoods,
    I will try to dig up some photos. Here is one of the project.

    Welcome to the forum. I like the older bikes too; motorized or conventional. I'd love to see the 47 Honda too. I bought a 69 Honda super 90 a few years back but had to sell before I could restore it.

    69 Honda super 90, wow! That is a neat looking bike. You don't see many of those for sale. Maybe another one will turn up for you. What conventional bicycles do you have?

    3step- I thought the Honda Super 90 looked sharp and would be great for my 11 mile commute each way to work. After the purchase, I started sanding away the corrosion and secured a bonded title. Unfortunately we soon had to move and put a lot of our things in storage, so I had to sell. I will keep an eye out for a nice one.
